My step kids (in their twenties) grew up playing Skittles at their grandparents house. I made this for them to play while they visit our home. It was a big hit. The table is solid birch. The pins are made from maple, coca bola, purple heart, ebony, and another orange-colored exotic wood.
The spinning top knocks down the pins for various points depending on the location. It’s a fun family game. The taper of the pins must be on a curve or they will block the top too much. Turning the pins and tops was trickier than I expected.
